The second half of the eighties brought about major changes to my young life in that my family and I gathered up all of our humble belongings and moved to the southernmost part of Texas to be closer to my grandparents who had relocated back to Mexico. With the home video revolution in full swing, […]

Short Film Roundup Reviews: HEAD & INTRODUCING PARKER DOWD


I love short films. Don’t get me wrong, there’s an infinite amount of things to love about features as well, but I’m in love with the idea of having to tell a story and invoke emotions and tone within a small amount of time, it impresses me very much and for each of our Short […]

Will 2016 be another solid year for horror?


With how back and forth the horror genre and its films did in 2015, it’s a mystery how the genre will fare this year. 2015 saw studio films like IT FOLLOWS, THE VISIT and THE GIFT doing pretty well, while others such as Eli Roth’s cannibal revival film THE GREEN INFERNO and the criminally underrated SINISTER 2 missed […]

WOW! Epic Pictures Announces Rad As Fu%! 3-Disc “Ultra Turbo Charged” Edition of TURBO KID; Hitting Faces January 25th

The psychological horror film features a career-defining performance from Freaks and Geeks/Buffy […]



PHANTOM OF THE WOODS opens with a man running from a dark, shadowy figure in the woods. It’s clear right away that the figure is not human, but we only get a distant and vague look at it in the beginning. This reminded me of the Slenderman mythos, one of the best inventions to come […]



I’m going to put it out there right away: I’m a sucker for holiday horror. I’m also a sucker for horror movies set in Illinois. As an Illinois native, I yearn more movies set here in the Midwest as I can’t relate to the horrors of sorority sisters in California. Two popular franchises originated here […]

TV Review: AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL Episode 12: “Be Our Guest”


While AHS has been renewed for another season, HOTEL’s season finale could’ve easily worked as a series finale. The episode gave an overwhelming sense of everything we’ve been watching for the last five years has finally come full circle, culminating on the Devil’s Night. Characters both old and new paid a visit to the Hotel […]
